Re: Most important skill in baseball
I think it's the ability to will the pitcher to walk you. Scouts need to realize this and start tracking Little Leaguers who steadfastly anchor the bat to their shoulders, quaking at the knees and whimpering in order to divert the pitcher's attention from the plate.
Nah -- it's squaring the baseball on the barrel of the bat.
